Opened in 2010 and relocated to its current location in 2014, Marlowe is a New American bistro located in San Francisco’s Soma neighborhood in the former COCO500 space.
Brought to you by Executive Chef Jennifer Puccio and award-winning San Francisco designer Ken Fulk, Marlowe focuses on classic comfort foods with flavorful twists, like Chef Puccio’s signature Marlowe Burger, seasonal poulet vert, brussels sprouts chips and quail egg topped steak tartare.
Taking inspiration from the butcher shops of the past, Marlowe is designed with a sleek but comfortable feel, featuring white subway tiles, white marble, deep blue banquettes, wood block tables and specials listed on rolls of butcher paper.
Topped with cheddar, caramelized onions, bacon and horseradish aïoli, the Marlowe burger shot to the top of SF burger lists after a superlative review by Michael Bauer. Bauer praised the burger for it’s mix of ground beef and lamb… but the Marlowe burger is and always has been 100% beef. Despite trying to rectify the confusion, the myth lives on even 10 years later.
